Solved Can my motherboard handle DDR3 1333 sticks? Tags: Memory Laptops DDR3 Motherboards Product Last response: September 19, 2011 12:30 AM in Memory Share DiSNiGkAROB September 7, 2011 8:00:43 AM I recently purchased a laptop that came equipped with 4 GB Ram DDR3 1066 and I'm wondering if my motherboard supports 1333 sticks of ram. I have an Acer Aspire 5750G-9463 Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit CPU Type:2nd Generation Intel Core i7-2630QM 2.00GHz Memory Size: 4GB DDR3 1066 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... that site has everything else to know about my laptop. I read that it can but I am still uncertain and would like another opinion. Please help! Much appreciated!

I just checked the Acer site. DiSNiGkAROB September 7, 2011 9:44:03 AM I figured, but if it can support 1333 might as well get it, you know?

If you can get the 1333's for cheaper then just make sure the place you buy it from are willing to take it back if it does not work. Thank you for your replies! appreciate it Best solution x Heavy September 8, 2011 12:44:27 AM Share The motherboard is going to default to the absolute slowest speed it can find. Shoving 1333 ram into a 1066 board will cause you either heaven or more likely hell. Having said that, I shoved a 2133 ram into a 1600 default ram board (MSI) and got away with it as the Bios recognized the ram. The ram sticks only run 2133 and nothing else. Essentially I gambled all or nothing on that ram speed for myself. I make it work. I tried to overclock 1333 into 1600 on my DFI lanparty some time ago and managed to make it work, however it's like kicking a man who has one too many plates spinning on a stick on stage.
